They have a special balm called "shaving cream" and "aftershave" to treat the resulting scrapes.

I've never gone into blades but I like the aesthetics of them.

Soap is the key. A good cream soap like any made by Taylor's of Old Bond Street give a lot better and more protective shave than any cake soap you'll find local like Williams. It's also easier to work into a good lather.

Nothing is more "ymmv" than shaving gear, but Walmart brand stuff will turn you off to wet shaving.

I have a Edwin Jagger 89, and a Merkur 34. But, lately I've mostly been using a Weber head (made in the US) on a custom handle. All my razors are three piece razors like yours.

I restore vintage brushes and make custom brushes on the side.

How long does a brush usually last?

I have a bunch of old safety razor stuff. stroppers and all that. I like the crappy new stuff they have. Pop one chingadera out and clip a new one in. works good for me.
